Sixth European Conference on Modelling Foundations and Applications  
(ECMFA 2010)
(Formerly the ECMDA-FA series of conferences)

June 15-18 2010

University of Pierre & Marie Curie (UPMC), Paris, France


Co-organizers :
CEA LIST (Laboratory of technology research for software-intensive  
UPMC-LIP6 (Laboratoire d'Informatique de Paris 6)

Model-Based Engineering (MBE) is an approach to the design and  
development of software and systems that relies on exploiting high- 
level models and computer-based automation to achieve significant  
boosts in both productivity and quality. The ECMFA (European  
Conference on Modelling Foundations and Applications) conference  
series (formerly known as the ECMDA-FA conference series) is dedicated  
to advancing the state of knowledge and fostering the industrial  
application of MBE and related approaches. Its focus is on engaging  
the key figures of research and industry in a dialogue which will  
result in stronger and more effective practical application of MBE,  
producing thereby more reliable software based on state-of-the-art  
research results.

In addition to the technical paper, the conference will include  
workshops, tutorials, tool demonstrations, and poster exhibitions on  
these topics.
Below are the calls for these various events.

ECMFA has two distinct paper tracks: one for research papers (Track F)  
dealing with the foundations for MBE, and one for industrial/ 
applications papers (Track A) dealing with the applications of MBE,  
including experience reports on MBE tools.

Submission procedure is described at http://www.ecmfa-2010.org/index.php/paper-submission
Accepted papers (tracks F and A) are planned to be published in a  
dedicated Springer LNCS volume.

ECMFA has traditionally had a very strong tools and consultancy track  
since this is often the meeting place between academic and industrial  
people interested in the practice of MBE. In this track, we are  
soliciting demonstrations of academic, open source, and commercial  
tools for applying MBE. MBE Consultants are also welcome to  
participate in this track and should prepare a portfolio of their  
recent MBE consulting engagements. Commercial tool vendors and  
consultants will be required to take up a level of sponsorship in  
order to participate in the Tools track.
The tool and consultancy track consists of:
- A tools and services presentation track, running in parallel to the  
main sessions of the conference.
- An exhibition area where tool providers and consultants can  
demonstrate their tools and services to the conference attendees.
- A poster area where open source and academic tools can present their  
tools to the conference attendees.
Each exhibitor will have the possibility to get a slot in the tools  
and services presentation track, which can be used to discuss and  
demonstrate their proposals. Academic and open source tool providers  
with posters will also be scheduled in the tools and services track.  
All presentations from this track will be published in the CTIT  
Proceedings Series and as a technical report available on the web site  
as PDF download.

Tools and Consultancy Applications
Tools and Consultancy proposals should include:
- Your affiliation
- A comprehensive (two to four pages) description of the tool(s) or/ 
and service(s) to be presented, with emphasis on the aspects that make  
the tool(s) or/and service(s) relevant in the context of MBE
- The maturation level of your tool, including whether your tool is  
academic, open source, or commercial.
- Whether you want to participate in the tools presentation track, or  
only to the exhibition

Tools and Consultancy Submission
Electronic submissions (in PDF) should be sent to the Tools and  
Consultancy  chair :
Sébastien Gérard (sebastien.gerard at cea.fr).
